When it comes to aftermarket car accessories, paint protection film is one of the best investments you can make. At Sun Control of Minnesota, we install Scotchgard™3M paint protection films that protect a car’s paint from salt, keys, weather, pebbles, sand, and more while you’re out on the road. When applied to areas of high vulnerability, our PPF can keep your car’s paint looking newer for much longer.

In this post, we’re breaking down the 3M paint protection film installation process so you’ll know exactly what to expect when you schedule your film installation. Contact Sun Control to schedule your PPF install today!

  1. Consultation

The beginning of every PPF installation starts with understanding our clients’ needs. We’ll sit down and meet with you to discuss your needs and develop a plan of action. After evaluating the condition of your paint and offering recommendations, we’ll discuss your options, walk you through what to expect, and schedule your installation.

  1. Preparation

When you bring your ride in for PPF installation, we’ll start by prepping it for treatment. Any badges will need to be removed from the areas to be covered. This creates a more seamless finish by preventing visible edges. Next, we’ll sanitize and wash your car’s exterior surfaces thoroughly.

  1. 3M Film Installation

After cutting your custom 3M film based on the package you’ve chosen, our paint protection film team will start the installation process. Our 3M-certified installers will apply the film to each area and complete the sealing process according to 3M specifications.

Applying 3M film that’s custom rather than pre-cut helps to ensure that every corner and edge is cleanly applied and tucked for an expert-level finish. The entire process takes between one to four hours.

Choosing Your 3M PPF Package

Not sure which level of protection is right for your ride or fleet? We offer three packages to choose from. For the highest level of protection, you’ll want our Ultimate Package, which covers a vehicle’s full mirrors, fenders, hood, bumper, and door edges.

For high-impact coverage on SUVs and larger sedans, we recommend the Highway Package, which includes partial hood coverage, mirror backs, fenders, full front bumper, and door edges. If you drive a city commuter vehicle, you may prefer our City Package, which includes fenders, mirror backs, door edges, and partial hood coverage. Our installers can help you select the right package for your vehicle wherever and however you drive.
